This is one of our favorite museums in the whole world!!!
Waldorf and I got to see a model of the Hubble Space Telescope. It's HUGE! The real thing floats in the upper atmosphere about 350 miles above ground and takes stunning photos of far off places. These are places Waldorf and I couldn't ever see- even if we climbed the highest peaks and squinted really hard.
(350 miles is just about the distance between San Francisco and Los Angeles!)
Hubble takes very clear pictures of objects in space, such as:
nebula- a gas cloud that can collapse to give birth to stars
star- an enormous, dense, burning ball of gas that gives off light
galaxy- a swirl of up to hundreds of BILLIONS of stars, planets, and more.
Did you know that when the Hubble was first launched into space, it had blurry vision?! Astronauts had to visit it and place a special lens on it. It's as if the Hubble got a pair of glasses!
Waldorf and I found some funny space jokes!
Q: Why didn't the sun go to college?

Q: How do you organize a space party?
A: You planet!
